A Call to All Leaders from Young Leaders: Manifesto for Social Change - NPQ - Nonprofit Quarterly



“The manifesto is trying to give Millennials a process for change, a way to reimagine and fix the systems that aren’t working and gathering tools and resources,” says Golbin-Goodman. Owusu emphasizes that collective action is required saying that the piece “is a call for people to come together and look at the scale of the problems and understand that nobody is going to be able to solve them alone.”

Best Charity Sites to Teach Kids About Giving

Best Charity Sites to Teach Kids About Giving: "This poses a challenge. How do you effectively instill in young minds the power of monetary giving, if their entire experience is with pixels on a screen? After all, placing money in a church collection (religion tops U.S. individuals’ charitable giving), is a physical act, one that can then be easily connected to the upkeep and running of the organization and any programs it runs."

Charitable giving isn’t just for adults | Collingwood Enterprise Bulletin

Charitable giving isn’t just for adults | Collingwood Enterprise Bulletin: "Talk about giving a portion of one’s money, or even a portion of one’s time, to charity is not a common one to be had between parents and their young adults. Charity is mostly seen as solely an adult’s cause, one that does not need to be thought about at this time in our lives. I, however, see charity as a much more beneficial and important aspect to becoming a considerable part of the community.

The idea of giving back to ​society should be stressed just as much as giving back to the ​economy."
